Characters and deeds
In 1978, Yu Guo failed the college entrance examination because of his leg disability. In the late 1980s, he went into business. In 1994, he founded Jiangxi higher vocational school with all his bonus, and in six years, he established a private university with 15000 students without any investment from the state. The university is one of the largest private universities in China. He has won the national model of self-improvement, China glory medal, China outstanding youth volunteer, Jiangxi Top Ten Outstanding Youth Awards and honorary titles.
Disabled and ambitious
In 1978, looking forward to the future, Yu Guo took part in the college entrance examination. However, although his score exceeded the admission score line by 40 points, he was not admitted because of his leg disability. After suffering a heavy blow, he soon picked himself up, and with his expertise in fine arts, he was admitted to Jiangxi Opera Troupe and became an artist and tailor. But he did not give up the pursuit of knowledge for a moment. He not only insisted on in-service study, completed higher education, but also obtained a master's degree in Business Economics from the Chinese Academy of social sciences. In the late 1980s, Yu Guo "went to the sea". With his outstanding hardworking spirit and intelligence, he had worked hard for several years and saved millions of yuan. At this time, he thought of his own painful experience and many other young people who were just like him and could not realize his dream of learning and becoming a talent. So he decided to set up a university so that all the students who failed, disabled and poor like him could have the opportunity to go to university.
After several years of efforts, Jiangxi vocational school finally enrolled students from the society. At the beginning, the teaching buildings of the school were all rented, so it is conceivable that the conditions for running the school were hard. The headmaster's office is located in a small room with less than 10 square meters near the toilet. Yu Guo is both a headmaster and a handyman. He often uses instant noodles to satisfy his hunger. Sometimes he is too busy to eat. His overwork has led to stomach bleeding many times. In this way, a disabled person overcomes the difficulties that normal people can't bear and walks difficultly and confidently towards the dream in his heart.
Yu Guo is determined to invest another 10 million yuan to build his own school. But this is not easy, he ran around to raise funds, while in order to save money, purchasing construction materials in person. In order to ensure the quality of the project, he simply ate and lived with the workers. After a year of hard work, the school finally owned its own teaching building in 1995. The number of students soared to more than 3000, and the scale of the school expanded. In this way, more people can realize their university dream under the blue sky.
Establishing private colleges and Universities
Yu Guo is not satisfied with his achievements. He is determined to pursue a higher level of development of the school. In 1994, he established Jiangxi senior vocational school, China's first Sino foreign cooperative private school, together with people from the industrial and educational circles in Hong Kong and the United States, and introduced a new educational concept and management mechanism. The school implements the president responsibility system under the leadership of the board of directors, sets up majors for the market, implements the management mode of appointment system, combines full-time and part-time teachers, and socializes the logistics service. Only about one tenth of the staff of the public university has completed the education task of 15000 students.
In 2003, a large-scale private university with an area of more than 2000 mu, a construction area of 180000 square meters, 2000 teaching staff and modern teaching facilities stood on the red land. The school adheres to the principle of "teaching as the center and education as the foundation" and comprehensively promotes quality education. It has trained more than 10000 application-oriented talents to meet the needs of market economy and more than 15000 students.
By 2011, the number of students in school has exceeded 40000, with 3000 teaching staff, cultivating countless new talents for all over the country.
In order to achieve rapid development, he and his colleagues work 15 or 6 hours a day, and rarely rest on Sundays. After six years of unremitting efforts, with the enterprising spirit of reform, Yuguo has finally made the school realize the three strides from higher vocational education (technical secondary school level) to Southeast Advanced Education College (Diploma pilot unit) and then to blue sky college into the national plan of unified examination and recruitment.
